and the sons of iraq also known as -- which are essentially a raiders, kerry militants, whatever you want to call them, hired as extras duty guards by the united states military. a lot of these guys were former insurgents who were just not necessarily die hard for the cause but were just looking for a paycheck. and yes, if you're wondering, shouldn't they be on the same side? yes, they should be. but between sunni shia rivalry and personal rivalries, it all got mixed up. so somehow we're on the other side of town but somehow a firefight between the two of them kicked off and we rolled straight in the middle of it. we conducted straight at the cat which effectively ended the firefight. it was much like the band of brothers when they get back behind the tank and press north. that's exactly what we did. with my staff sergeant who was three steps ahead of me and initiate in fact, that's what he got from him was the brothers.

to get speaking from israel and i'd add that we know that secretary kerry is coming here to israel after the president leaves to try to see if he can jump-start peace talks. so it's possible that the administration is trying to talk down expectations so they can actually get something out of this in terms of peace talks in the end, jake. >> this trip as you know comes in the shadow of claims that syria is using chemical weapons against the rebels, claims that president obama just minutes ago noted were unconfirmed but he did also say that if they're true it would be a game changer. you had a chance to talk to israel's justice minister about this. what did she say? >> well, she said the u.s. involvement would make a difference in syria and she said chemical weapons in syria threaten israel and she's confident that they have been used in syria but she wouldn't say by whom. have you seen any evidence of proof that there has been chemical weapons used in syria? >> it is clear to us in israel that it's being used, and the problem is that while it's being used we have syria, we have hezbollah
.s.? >> well, two days ago secretary kerry basically said to the u.k. and france, go ahead, arm the rebels. we'll give nonlethal aid, sort of leading from behind. i really can't predict what the obama administration mo in their policy. if they do cross it clearly we'll have to make sure these don't get mobilized. five areas have chemical weapons, depots in syria. we have to protect the our ally israel. to make sure the region doesn't degenerate. that entire region with assad completely on the side of iran and lebanon and hezbollah, this is a regional conflict that many of us have an trying to plead that will expand into the entire region, affect the economy and energy prices. melissa: let me ask you about that. what does it mean for the economy? the human toll is devastating and makes us all shudder to see the pictures. this is a show about "money". we want to make sure we discuss that. what does decivilization mean for the economies of the region? >> well, because you have sort of the shia-sunni axis splitting right in the middle of syria you will see the arab sunni states, the gulf states ge
emerging from the united states. what's going on? >> reporter: well, john kerry came out today and said quite clearly that he would not stand in the way of allies of the united states who wanted to arm the syrian rebels. that's not saying the u.s. would do that themselves. they've been very reluctant and the joint chiefs of staff says his understanding of who the rebels were, in fact, got more confused the past year as the rebels gone more extremists. what john kerry's words do is permit the uk and france to begin the process of arming. they've been talking about ev e evading or working around eu sanctions. they are yet to begin the process of handing them over. it's a long, difficult, practical road ahead, but part of the calculation is by saying they'll do it, they might draw president bashar assad towards a negotiation table, put extra pressure on him, wolf? >> joining us from beirut with that story, significant developments. thanks, nick, very much. >>> there are huge problems to tackle in the middle east right now, but the white house is downplaying expectations for the president'
thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis

kerry intends to spend significant time, effort and energy in trying to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we can not give up on the search for peace. too much is at stake. and if we're gonna succeed, part of what we're going to have to do is to get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides are going to have to think anew. those of us in the united states are going to have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive at our destination to advance the vision of two nations, two neighbors, at peace, israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing that i'm very certain of is that the palestinians have the talent, the drive, and the courage to succeed in their own state. i think of the villages that hold peaceful protests because they understand the moral force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i think of the entrepreneurs determined to create something new, like the young palestinian woman i met at the entrepreneurship summit that i hosted who wants to build r
is my administration is committed in doing our part. i know that secretary of state john kerry intends to spend significant time, effort, and energy into try to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we cannot give up on the search for peace. oo much is at stake. and if we're going to success, part of what we're going to do is get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides have to think anew. those of us in the united states have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive in our destination to advance the vision of two nation, two neighbors at peace israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing i'm certain of is the palestinians have the talent, drive, and the courage to succeeded in their own state. i think scrimmages to hold peaceful protests because they understand the force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i of the the entrepreneurs determined to create something new like the young palestinian woman i met at the summit that i hosted that wants to buil
at senator kerry's trip every day on that trip you saw him in a sense evolving in terms what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at, and a fresh look what can be done. and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good, thank you. david. >> thank you everyone. good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday. i must say i'm, well, dennis and i often have our own convergences. i might be a little less upbeat having returned from there. it could be a question how these things are put forward but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i mean i can not see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip because it's really two trips in one at least to israel. the public part, it is israel you would be hard-pressed to find a ford minivan's worth of israelis that who are anti-american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences have been with obama and they have been recorded in polls, for the most part every stop along the
%. john kerry also won 60% more votes than al gore had won four years before -- had won at 6% 6% morees -- had won votes. there was a huge increase in turnout. in this election, barack obama received 3.5 million fewer votes than he received four years before. a 5% decrease in votes. mitt romney received about 1 million more votes than john mccain. said andmmonly reported that he received fewer popular votes than mccain, and that is because of the delay of california and some of the other west coast states in reporting their numbers, but when they finally came in, he did. obama clearly benefited from a superior micro targeting and turnout effort, building on what the bush campaign had done in 2004 and then the substantial advances the obama campaign made in 2008 and working through a four-year period. they used consumer preferences and things of that nature to identify strong and unwavering obama voters, and then they used personal contact with a message. towards the voter propensities. geared towardsge the voters' propensities. you can see the results in the 12 target states, most of wh
together? wants to kerry prioritize this among half a dozen issues, and you have a new israeli government that cannot help deal with this issue. i don't think this president wants the next four years a two state solution to expire. that is a strong statement. but that is really true when you think of the pace of settlement activity. that is not a big concern. even if you can do a grand deal , you can preserve the option for a two state solution, that is very important. even though i do not think there is any drama or confrontation between these two leaders now, i think it would be a mistake, because everyone in washington has forgotten about the palestinian issue, and people in the middle east have bigger issues on their own agendas, but somehow this issue would fade out. upsurgehere will be an you will beor digging fresh graves and be left with old problems. each side knows that this issue is not going away. it would be a mistake to put the focus on some sort of immediate confrontation. i don't say that. that these two have worked with the palestinians to find a way out. i made my point
fought the two wars and having somebody who served the way he did is a good idea. and kerry was the obvious choice once the other thing blew up. >> hal: even before. but i also think it points to -- because he was always a good idea for it even with or without susan rice. he apparently wanted it it was not a -- obviously i think one of the reasons that republicans were so happy with it because they felt they could get an open seat to shoe horn scott brown back in. but here he is picking people for big cabinet positions that are uniquely qualified for the first time. >> yeah, and i think -- you know -- i mean i don't want get entirely sidetracked on this not on a day when mark sanford is back on the ballot -- >> hal: yeah. against stephen colbert's sister. >> no. >> hal: well he will be. >> met him, and he is really very charming. >> hal: i think any politician who is raised -- they have a mechanic that you learn how to do mouth crowd manipulation and maybe even personal hypnosis and i don't give people credit beyond their behavior and i'm sure you have
what we all hope for is any disruption -- that there will be any disruption in kerry's people move into new coverage options are potentially lose that coverage option if their income changes, disrupting care is not only detrimental medically, but has implications for public health as i mentioned. so to set up some thoughts for the panel, said key policy issues and challenges that affect both the lgbt community, what will be the network adequacy of all the new systems in the care delivery systems put in place, the benefits is very, very key. outreach education enrollment. we are at the point where we have to find ways to let people know that coverage options come in for another traces and provide ways to help enroll a new coverage were available. scaling up the workforce is going to be key. we still know there's challenges there. monitoring access in care. as people move into new coverage options are not able to, how will the systems bss? medicaid expansion decision, health insurance exchanges and ultimately the future of right way. i will wrap up now and leave you with these though
secretary kerry is going to be devoting a great deal of time to it. he is pressing it. and one of his tactics is to step back on his statements on settlements. four years ago he said stop the settlements and then we'll get to the peace talks. now he is urging the authorities to come to the peace table. >> bill: at the briefings, jay carney has been very quick to tamp down expectations for this trip. don't expect anything to be signed or any big agreement. in and of itself the trip is worth going on for the reasons that you stated, but do not expect any tangible results. >> that's right. no announcements are being announced. no plan to release some of the $700,000 in aid that has been held up. >> bill: why is that being held up? >> disputes over attacks by hamas on the gaza strip. >> bill: okay. okay. one of the first things the president did at the airport when he arrived yesterday morning was to -- to look at this installation of part of the iron dome defense system that the president did not make time to go out into the countryside to see it so they brought on
of state john kerry will remain at least a little bit trying to maybe get this israeli/palestinian peace process off the ground. >> jump-start it. >> he has some political issues he has to deal with, major issues here. how much of a subject of importance will this be for the president? >> look, i think this has been very good for the president because there were lots of people in the american jewish community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think an
